Human Health Risk Assessment Research
Human health risk assessment is the process by which estimates of the nature and probability of adverse health effects in humans, who may be exposed to chemicals in contaminated environmental media, are developed.

Hazard and Dose-Response Assessment
Part of a risk assessment is to develop hazard and dose-response assessments that evaluate information on the health effects that may result from exposure to environmental contaminants.
Science Assessments in Support of NAAQS (ISAs/MSAs)
Understanding the current science about the health and welfare effects of the criteria air pollutants is a critical Agency need to support decisions about the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
Exposure assessments are important to understanding the risks posed to human health from environmental contaminants.
Community Risk and Technical Support
Communities are often faced with an urgent need for coordinated assistance to assess and address issues of chemical and other environmental contamination.
Models, Databases, and Tools for Human Health
EPA's scientists are translating new research in molecular biology and computational sciences into practical applications for developing hazard and dose-response assessments – a critical step for advancing risk assessment.
